Sure, it is not easy on the calories, but if you want to at least cut the carbs, then replace the pasta with zoodles, or zucchini noodles, and retain the rest of the ingredients. The result is still an amazing, creamy dish.
Carbonara is a Roman dish created in the 20th century. It gained its popularity worldwide for its simplicity and excellent flavors of pancetta, eggs, cheese and pepper. Just don't forget to sprinkle it with as much freshly cracked black pepper as you can handle, because as the name suggests, the black pepper should be reminiscent of charcoal. "Carbonara" comes from the word "carbonaro," which means "coal burner," and in one of the theories about its history, it is said that the dish is a tribute to the Italian coal workers.
Since pancetta and zucchini are delicious partners, zucchini noodles replace the pasta while still retaining the genuine carbonara sauce mixed with it.
Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Total time: 30 minutes
Note: The egg mixture should be mixed away from the heat to avoid cooking the eggs. The eggs should cook slowly with the heat of the zucchini and should remain creamy.
